Welcome to Tea and Chocolate!

Care for a cup of tea? Or a fine chocolate?

I've been reading and enjoying several blogs over the past year, and have often wanted to share finds in the realm of good chocolate, tea places, good books, and travel. Why not a blog of my own? Gulp. Because I'm inexperienced and frankly clueless? Good answer. But we all have to start someplace, so welcome!

Introductions must be in order. I'm a 40-something, mother of one and an aspiring writer living in the northern midwest United States. Currently, I'm keeping an eye out for a job I can do while my little guy is at school, and in the meantime there's volunteer work and trying to create order out of chaos at home. My 7 year old is a mad scientist in training and he really keeps me on my toes! Luckily, he's still young enough to enjoy a tea party since it involves treats.

Reading is essential to me. During my son's early days of life, I realized that reading meant more to me than sleep or food, so even when I was taking care of him around the clock, I still made a bit of time for books. My current favorites are travelogues, historical romance, cozy mysteries, and nonfiction. I also enjoy making cards and working on scrapbooks.


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog, Beth, and congrats on starting your own! You sound a lot like me since I'm also a tea-loving 40-something (OK, 45), aspiring writer (I get paid to edit a magazine, but I "aspire" to write books), love to read, eat chocolate, do a little papercrafting ... I'll look forward to checking in with you!

  2. Hi Beth! I know what it is like to be a new blogger! We also have some things in common!
    I love tea and Chocolate to! Hope to see you around blogland.
